Football players (and parents of players), clubs, leagues, coaches and referees can access a short online survey until the end of January which provides an opportunity to play a crucial part in helping to shape a new four-year Essex County FA strategy.
Key grassroots stakeholders can contribute towards future projects through the survey, available below, which follows on from The FA’s ‘Our Game’ Consultation in 2023. This new Essex survey will inform about local-level priorities and build on the work delivered in the 2021-24 ‘#MovingForward’ Strategy, forming a set of progressive and ambitious goals up to 2028.
The FA’s ‘Our Game’ enabled national engagement with all stakeholders, including in-person feedback events. Now, central to our research, is the perspective of those at the heart of the Essex grassroots game, whose ideas and contributions will be key when formulating the strategy. The short survey is split into sections, discussing elements such as development programmes.
To complete the survey, and to make your contribution, click on one of the links below which best matches your involvement in the game. Feedback is anonymous and it takes just a few minutes to complete the questions. Participants aged under 18 should complete the survey alongside a parent/guardian. News and information is also shared on Twitter/X by @EssexCountyFA and by searching for ‘EssexFootball’ on Facebook.
